A new teaching hospital could be on its way to Elk Grove.
Plans were recently unveiled for a 250-bed teaching hospital that would also have a level-2 trauma center. The state-of-the-art facility would be next to the California Northstate University campus, which opened in Elk Grove in 2014.
The “CNU Medical Center” add-on would be part of the university’s goal to expand its research and educational efforts. The university says the project could bring around 1,400 support and medical jobs to Elk Grove.
Elk Grove Mayor Steve Ly had this to say about the project:
“We are excited about the potential that this project has for generating improved access to health care for our residents and more jobs within our community. With a population expected to exceed 200,000 residents within the next ten years, it’s time for Elk Grove to have its own hospital.”
It is expected that the city and other agencies will begin reviewing the project details in early 2019. A public input process also would begin around the same time.
